    My first p90x lean workout was this morning at 5 am. It says I should consume 3000 calories a day. Seems excessive. I just need some to say it's correct and the diet part is essential. Thanks Rick - 9/13/2010 8:24:21 PM

    Chia Seeds are THE BEST source of Omega-3 & Omega-6 essential fatty acids!
    These seeds are perfect for diabetics & people watching or trying to lose weight.
    Chia Seeds are also very beneficial to the heart and extremely high in fiber, calcium, high quality protein, slowly processed carbohydrates and loaded with vitamins & minerals and antioxidants!
    The health benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids are becoming widely known.
    What is not as well known is that the chia seed is THE BEST source of Omega-3.
    Chia seed is high in protein and high in calcium. 5 times the calcium of milk, 631 mg per 100 grams of seed.
    Chia seeds are also high in protein, with 18 grams per 100 grams of seed.
    The optimum ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6 should be 3:1.
    Chia seed provides that ratio.
    Chia seed is hydrophilic. Absorbing up to 14 times (Mix @ 9-10 times) its weight in water.
    This helps extend energy and endurance.
    Chia seed is rich in antioxidant oils.
    Chia contains chlorogenic acid, and caffeic acid as well as myricetin,
    quercetin, and kaempferol flavonols.
    These compounds are both primary and synergistic antioxidants that contribute to the strong antioxidant activity of chia.
    Chia seed is also low in sodium.
    Only 19 mg per 100 grams.

    Google chia seed for this and other info. - 3/22/2010 10:39:16 AM

  • Learning to balance all different take-out foods for convenience of time allowed sake, is key to the nourishment of all those who support you in your effort to respect your own body as a temple and govern it accordingly so. cc:kp
